Probably most significant among the new team's members is the inclusion of Mindwarp, the character that Milligan created specifically for his Flashpoint tie-in. The character has never been seen in the regular DCU -- only the Flashpoint universe -- but she is apparently being carried over after the end of the Flashpoint to now be part of the DCnU.
Milligan: It was the ďdarkĒ bit that really appealed to me. The idea of taking these characters and this kind of story into some dark places. That doesnít always or necessarily mean supernatural black magic dark. It can mean emotionally dark. A messed up confused kind of dark. The basic screwed up human condition transplanted onto a superhero/supernatural comic.
Nrama: Did you come up with the team or did DC? And can you describe at all the ideas behind those characters who are included?
Milligan: We had discussions and slowly boiled down the team we were all happy with. Obviously Iím the writer, so if there was someone mentioned whom I felt no connection with or felt really didnít add to what we were trying to do, then I had a veto (at least, I think I had a veto!). There were some characters I really wanted in there. Shade. Constantine. And my new character Mindwarp. I also enjoyed writing June Moone and Enchantress in Flashpoint: Secret Seven and wanted to have the opportunity to travel further into that strange, bifurcated landscape.
